Kinofilm is pleased to announce our autumn season of KINO SHORTS Northwest Short Film showcase and networking events, the first commencing on WED 27th September. We will once again be back at our favourite venue, Mini Cine located at Ducie Street Warehouse.
Kino Shorts is a programme of new short films from local and North West filmmakers. The event will take place in two sections each followed by Q&A’s with the directors of the films featured in each section. There will be allocated times for networking and drinks at the bar during the intermission and after the show and will be the perfect opportunity to meet with the filmmakers directly to discuss the films and explore opportunities for future collaborations. A limited number of tickets are now available. Purchase soon to guarantee your place.
The Q & A sessions will be hosted by Jeremiah Quinn, director/producer/writer and Film Production lecturer at Salford University whose award winning film OLUWALE was screened at Kinofilm Festival last November.
